"From Copper Harbor to Crystal Falls and Ironwood to Ishpeming Township, I am humbled by the people of the 110th House District for continuing to put their faith in me as their representative. When I was first elected in 2012, I went down to Lansing to fight for good-paying jobs, deliver a good education to our children, and secure affordable energy rates for families and small businesses. I look forward to continuing that fight in Lansing to build a stronger and more prosperous U.P. that works for everyone. I would like to thank my opponent, Greg Markkanen, for running a clean and respectable campaign. But above all, I want to thank my supporters. This election belongs to all of you. You have entrusted me to represent our U.P. values and I will continue to ensure our voice is heard in Lansing."
